Place the corn, garlic bulb, bell pepper and tomatoes in a large roasting pan. Roast the vegetables in a 450º oven until they are lightly tinged with brown, about 1½ hours. Turn the vegetables occasionally so that they brown evenly, and remove them if they appear to be getting too dark. Allow the vegetables to cool to room temperature.
Cut the corn kernels off of the cobbs. Chop the tomatoes and the bell peppers. In large mixing bowl, combine the corn kernels, chopped tomatoes, chopped bell peppers and the remaining ingredients. Stir until well mixed, then refrigerate until ready to use. Serve cold or at room temperature.
